"Femen" and I

This whole Femen thing really saddens me, for two reasons. The first is the obvious one - after going through so much to wear hijab, you think we'll ever remove it? If we remove it, we do so by our own choosing. No woman screaming in my face, burning my God's name, is ever going to convince me to remove hijab.

The second reason is that these women seem to think they are putting across a strong message. But in many of the photos that showed them in public, other people were only looking at their chests (not mentioning proper word here as it brings the blog up in google searches for that particular word lol). No matter what's written on your body, people are looking at your body, not the words! They're not taking in your message. It's the shock factor that has garnered them so much publicity - Amina, who you are apparently protesting for, is still wherever she is and your bare chests have not achieved anything. So... why?

It's just sad. Women are violently protesting against other women, when in reality feminism has nothing to do with what they are doing! It's a real shame.

Isn't a mothers love the craziest yet most overwhelming thing? Pre baby, I could never imagine how big my heart could get. But here I am, in love with an almost 4 month old, so in love with his every move. I often don't even have the strength to put him in his pram, so far from me... so he stays in my arms, always, entwined in fabric that thankfully allows us to do this. I can't bear to hear him cry, so he rarely does. I feel physical pain every time  I hear people encouraging mothers to let their children cry to sleep... subhanAllah. It's strange. Things that I didn't even bother to think about before consume me now.

I would never, ever have imagined this love was ever possible.

How do you make a password protected post now? I used to know but can't seem to figure it out since blogger changed...

Argh I wish I was one of those women that can try for another baby a few months after birth. I'd love to have another one! But far out, I'm way too scared of birth at the moment to think about another one.

That's what's been going through my head for the last week or so lol. Am overwhelmed with love for my son, so much so that I want to feel another bubby growing in me again... but not willing to go through what I went through so soon.
